Background and Mission

FASST Sports Association, Inc. (formerly The Falcons Track and Field Club, Inc.) is a community-centered, publicly supported, non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization based in the Washington Metropolitan area that was established on January 2, 2001 by Dr. Malcolm P. Drewery, Jr., the President and Head Coach, along with the Vice-President, Carleen Martin and Secretary/Treasurer, Beverly Drewery upon recognizing the need to enhance the quality of life and the need to expand educational and athletic opportunities for the community youth.

In 2010, the Falcon’s Track and Field Club, Inc. was renamed to FASST Sports Association, Inc. The Association was established with the same mission and goals; however a need was recognized to be more inclusive of all sports to increase the number of youths we could reach. The Association includes football, basketball, baseball/softball, boxing, and track and field. A knowledgeable and experienced Board of Directors was formed that would subscribe to the tenets of the Association with Dr. Drewery as President; Martez Taylor as Vice President/Secretary; and Eldon Hayman, Jr. as Treasurer, along with an Executive Advisory Committee comprised of the Executive Directors/Presidents of each program. The Association membership consists of over 400 members, and many are multiple sport participants.

The organization is now a member of the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), USA Track and Field (USATF), USA Boxing, The Capital Beltway Football League (CBL), and Little League Baseball. The organization is an incorporated entity of the state of Maryland and determined to be a tax-exempt entity by the Internal Revenue Service.

Our Mission

Our mission is to promote projects that will show our youth that education and athletics work hand in hand. We are committed to serving the most vulnerable, yet difficult to reach group in our community, our at-risk youth. Focusing on underserved communities, our programs seek to provide enriching life experiences that encourage and challenge youth to excel in their development intellectually, athletically, emotionally, physically and socially. Though we pursue one mission, we offer a variety of options for challenge and achievement. FASST strives to offer our student-athletes the opportunity to take ownership of their future, making a difference today and in the future.
